When it comes to designing and building homes during and post-pandemic, how do we, as an industry, better adapt and respond? In this Master Workshop, a panel of experts will examine the design elements and community approaches that must change to be prepared. Land planning, architecture, interior health and wellness, building products/systems and consumer behavior analytics are key elements to such preparedness. Explore how good, healthy design in housing highlights the power of product and system selection and innovation. Recognize how communities that thrive will depend on the success of holistic approaches that consider regional and cultural diversity and mindful public/private partnerships.

  • Understand how neighborhoods and communities are affected by the disruption of a pandemic and what strategies can be implemented to make them more resilient.
  • Discover how health-driven design trends impact a communitys ability to thrive during a crisis and which solutions should be prioritized first for maximum impact.
  • Explore healthy, innovative building and design products, and systems that focus on community and housing industry resilience.
  • Learn the floor plan and lifestyle design adjustments that respond well to changes necessitated by the "work-from-home, learn from home, stay at home" phenomenon.
